Forfar Athletic 1-1 Arbroath

Forfar Athletic were denied a Scottish League One victory by a late Arbroath goal at Station Park.

Martyn Fotheringham's corner was converted by Paul McManus to give the home side the lead.

Arbroath pushed hard for an equaliser but attempts by Robert Linn and Michael Travis did not find the target.

However, Travis then slotted home from six yards to level the match before the visitors had Graham Bayne sent off for serious foul play.
